Zap Zombies in your street

HAD to wait until I got home to try this because it's the kind of game I'd play if I ever got bored in the office.

It's one of those casual web distractions that do the rounds, except with a clever twist.

You get to zap zombies in your street thanks to a developer who has overlaid the game on to Google's Street View.

Virgin Trains have seized on it to get across their marketing message. The aim of the game is to convert as many undead into happy Virgin commuters and high scores win First Class rail travel.

Oh and Richard Branson will appear as a zombie.

So you get to zap him too.

Try it at but don't have nightmares.
